CALA Alliance is an Arizona community-based organization dedicated to educating and inspiring everyone about the richness of our Latino cultural heritage. Anchored by a bi-annual arts and cultural festival, Celebración Artística de las Américas (CALA), creates shared arts experiences that encourage cultural understanding between people of the Americas. Through festivals, performances, exhibits, in-school activities, food, music and events, we all share in the joy and beauty of the cultural life of the Americas. The life we live throughout Arizona.
The inaugural CALA Alliance Festival was held in 2011. Since then, more than 40 member organizations throughout Metro-Phoenix have engaged in programming a variety of arts and cultural activities that celebrate our ties to Latin America. The CALA Alliance Festival continues to be the only international cultural festival exclusively focused on our regional distinction: our ties to the Americas.
